All fighters make weight for RIZIN 19


RIZIN heads to the Edion Arena in Osaka Saturday for RIZIN 19 and the opening round of its highly-anticipated Lightweight Grand Prix.

All fighters made weight for the 13-fight card, which looks set to proceed, despite the threat of super typhoon Hagibis.

The Lightweight Grand Prix was also green lit after all eight participants made weight. This included Patricky Freire vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri; Luiz Gustavo vs. Hiroto Uesako; Tofiq Musaev vs. Damien Brown and Johnny Case vs. Roberto de Souza.

Also on the bill is Kai Asakura (13-1), who returns to take on former UFC veteran Ulka Sasaki (22-7), while super atomweight contenders Ham Seo-Hee (21-8) vs. Miyuu Yamamoto (5-3) clash on the main card.
